What is HIFU Body Contouring?

Going under the knife used to be the only way to permanently eliminate stubborn fat cells, contour the body and tighten skin. Now, thanks to technological advances, non-surgical alternatives to removing stubborn fat and tightening skin are available, safer, and more effective than ever. At Body Catalyst, our Aesthetic and Wellness experts combine a holistic approach with medical-grade technology to assess the body and tailor recommendations specific to your concerns and body goals.

If you’re concerned with shifting the last few cm’s off to help you achieve your body goals, then HIFU body contouring may be for you.

At Body Catalyst, our body contouring treatment uses the latest in body shaping technology with non-invasive Ulfit HIFU. It is a quick, painless, no downtime alternative to surgery or needles to permanently eliminate stubborn fat, whilst also tightening the skin.

How does it work?

Ulfit HIFU is a precisely controlled, macro-focused circular ultrasound that permanently eliminates fat and visibly tightens skin, with no pain or downtime to safely and effectively target concern areas.

Ultrasound targets the fat cells using deep dermal micro-heating the area to 60-70° to permanently eliminate fat cells for good. The high-frequency ultrasound waves also result in heating under the skin to tighten and lift as well as reduce stubborn fat pockets.

While the treatment is heating and destroying fat cells, the skin remains protected and comfortable throughout the 30-minute session.

Is this for me?

For most of us, we often find it hard to maintain a diet and healthy lifestyle, especially if we simply lack time or motivation. Stubborn pockets of fat, loose skin or sagging skin, can occur as a result of aging, lifestyle, genetics, natural body weight fluctuations, and post-pregnancy. If you have small pockets of fat that you’re looking to eliminate whilst also tightening the skin then HIFU may well be the treatment for you. At your initial consultation, our body experts will be able to advise if Ulfit is appropriate for you.

Areas to be treated include: Buttocks, Saddle Bags, Inner Thighs, Abdomen, Arms.

Can HIFU Damage the skin?

No, your skin cannot be damaged. It is a safe treatment, which is specifically designed to tighten, rejuvenate, repair, and lift the skin. Be assured that the skin will neither be damaged nor adversely affected.

Are there any side effects?

While side effects are very uncommon, there is a small chance they could occur. These possible side effects are generally mild and temporary and can include a slight redness to the skin, which will decrease within 30 minutes. Some people may experience slight tenderness or sensitivity following their Ulfit treatment from a few days up to one or two weeks. This typically is a good sign that things are happening deep within the skin.

Is Ulfit Safe?

Absolutely. The treatments are non-invasive – meaning the treatment does not penetrate the skin so there is no risk of infection or complication. Nor do we use toxins. The treatment itself acts as a catalyst to stimulate the body’s natural processes.

Is HIFU painful?

No Ulfit HIFU is not painful, HIFU is specifically engineered to enable maximum ultrasound emission power levels to be delivered comfortably, ensuring the best results from the treatment.

What They Say

Loved the experience I had here and would definitely recommend it for anyone new to HIFU. Olga was incredibly thorough with my consultation and provided great service. The receptionist was lovely too and the clinic had a lovely atmosphere. The HIFU itself was more painful than I expected but it was definitely worth it as my results were amazing!

Today I had a HIFU treatment for skin tightening on face, neck and decolletage. My practitioner was Mandy. Her professional knowledge and application manner is to be commended. She was extremely confident but also very careful to ensure my comfort and safety during this challenging procedure. I would definitely recommend her.

I’ve had 1 session of HIFU, it’s been 3 weeks since my treatment and I can definitely see improvements in my skin. Olivia was absolutely amazing, she was very gentle and checked in with me consistently throughout the facial. I couldn’t have felt more comfortable! Excited to see my results continue in the coming weeks and after all 3 sessions are complete. Very thorough service. Would highly recommend 🥰

The team are friendly , professional and knowledgeable. It's about the results you would like to achieve. Highly recommend HIFU for face and neck, after the first treatment, some results were instant and then changes still occurring after the first month.Cryolipolysis to my upper arms, first session completed and very happy with the results so far
